Tata JLR To Road Test Driverless Cars In Britain

A fleet of 100 smart tech research vehicles, including Jaguar and Land Rover models, will test new systems that enable cars to communicate with each other, aimed at making driving safer and cutting traffic jams. The corridor includes 41 miles of roads around Coventry and Solihull in the West Midlands. “This real-life laboratory will allow Jaguar Land Rover’s research team and project partners to test new connected and autonomous vehicle technologies on five different types of roads and junctions,” Dr Wolfgang Epple, director of research and technology at JLR, said.
